  • RR 08-02-05... SIRIUS Support ...

    In this version:

    -Added Screen Limiting Option (To limit memory usage)
    -Added Full SIRIUS Support
    -Added Weather Support (Thanks to MSCAR)
    -Improved Memory Handling
    -Fixed Issue with "ADD1" on searchfiles results
    -Fixed Issue with "SETLABEL" on switching labels
    -Fixed Issues with "DIRECTION" indicator
    -Fixed Issue with "SEARCHLIST" on XM

    Notes:

    -I'll be updating the skins to include SIRIUS support. If you wish to try it before then, download this: SiriusFiles.zip. You'll need to change/make a button to execute "SIRIUS". RR should work with ANY sirius interface as long as it provides a SERIAL/COM port for commnication with the tuner. Thanks to Chuck for the Station Art images. You should also read a few notes on Sirius support HERE .
    -Screen limiting is optional and is done by adding "screenlimit=N" to RR.INI where N is the number of screens allowed in memory (minimun of 3).
    -For now, Weather Support only works when the internet is connected. I might add Weather Cache support later. You'll need those files: Weather.zip. You should thank MSCar this code. The Weather folder should be inside RR's folder.
    -As you may have seen when I was testing a BETA version, the memory optimizations took out quite a bunch of my time during the past few weeks.. I tried about 6 different approches before defining the current one.

    For as much as I don't like to, I'll spend some time improving a few things in the Brushed skins on the next few days..

    As always, thank you for your support,
    Guino.

    PS: Special thanks to MitchJS who was kind enough to donate one of his interface boards (soon for sale) for development purposes.

    conM = Int(remTime / 60)
    remTime = remTime Mod 60
    conS = remTime
    If conH > 0 Then strRetTime = Format(conH, "00") & ":"
    strRetTime = strRetTime & Format(conM, "00") & ":"
    strRetTime = strRetTime & Format(conS, "00")
    getThisTime = strRetTime

          funny things happening with flash ? Just updated to this version, but now it seems that the flash bit is being overwrote by image_on when hovering over, then sometimes it stays on, then other times it disappears

            Guino - this is awesome! I can NOT believe how fast you shot out a SIRIUS update! I know you used MitchJS's interface, but you speak about a com port - isn't MitchJS's USB? Or is it creating a virtual com port? Thanks again for all your work, with any luck I'll be able to get in touch with Mitch and get my own interface...

                Hey Guino, pardon my extreme ignorance, but where do I change the area that it gets the weather from?

                      Yeah, I have yet to add those options to RRConfig. I meant to mention it, and forgot (did place it in the readme.txt file though).. Add to RR.INI:

                      cityweather=<CITY>
                      weatherunits=USA|WORLD

                      Examples:
                      cityweather=Los Angeles, CA
                      weatherunits=USA

                      or

                      cityweather=Amsterdam, Netherlands
                      weatherunits=WORLD

                      I can't guarantee coverage for the entire world...

                        You need to use the "REQUEST" command... i.e. "REQUEST;MyApp;RRSCREEN" where 'MyApp' is the window name that will receive the message with the information requested. There are more details in Skin Commands.txt.

                          His USB interface simulates a COM port (serial) for easy interfacing. Direct USB control is also possible but requires extra files I didn't want to use.

                            Awesome...hopefully he'll respond to my PM and I can get one of these interfaces...

                              I only found an issue with the Flashtastic skin.. the SHUFFLE/REPEAT indicators are still defined to draw the images onto the screen and RR is doing it over the flash object (new drawing functions have more power now).. but if you define them as 'Ixx,0,0,0,0' for area that won't happen.

                              Please give me another example of "funny thing" and I'll look into it.. I can't exepect to re-write most of the image handling and have no issues at all..
